Bars, Blondies & Brownies/ Desserts

Peanut Butter Blondies

Peanut butter blondie bars, full of peanut butter flavor with creamy peanut butter and peanut butter baking chips.  What’s not to love about that combination?!?  These blondie bars stay sooooo soft thanks to the brown sugar in this recipe.  Easy, one bowl recipe here folks.  And because they are bars, you just dump the dough in the pan and bake off to perfection!

So I have a gorgeous blonde friend, Meredith, who was wanting some special treats!  So when Meredith told me she loved anything peanut butter…it got me thinking.  What would be the perfect treat to send my dear friend?  Why peanut butter blondies of course!!  Plus these would ship well, as I was sending these off to Georgia where Meredith lives.  Hopefully they got there in one piece hehehehe!

Peanut Butter Blondies

Print Recipe
Serves: 12-14 Cooking Time: 25-Minutes


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used M&M's)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips



Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.


In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, add the melted butter and brown sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and both extracts into the sugar mixture and mix until combined. Add peanut butter and mix on medium-high speed until ingredients are incorporated and thoroughly mixed. On low speed, add the salt, nutmeg and flour to the sugar mixture and mix until just combined. Add chocolate chips and peanut butter chips and mix for 10-seconds.


Pour dough out into prepared pan and spread evenly into the pan.


Bake in 350-degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out without raw batter on it.


Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Mmm hmm!!

      Hi Aushia! These are SUPER easy and SUPER yummy. Nice and soft and thick! So I totally recommend these for your NYE party OR…..look up my CTC Snickerdoodle Blondies here on the blog! These are also really easy and loved by everyone who tries them! If you don’t have Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal on hand, you can just make them with the cinnamon sugar mixture sprinkled on top! You can email me at if you have any questions about either recipe!! XOXO
